The wheat is being transported to Afghanistan via Pakistan’s land route, Pajhwok news agency reported.
Such a shipment was previously tweeted by Arindam Bagchi, spokesman for the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, on Tuesday.
Earlier, New Delhi sent 2,500 metric tons of wheat to Afghanistan via Pakistan on February 22, followed by a second consignment of 2,000 metric tons.
This is the Indian Government’s commitment to supply 50,000 metric tons of wheat for the Afghan population, a country in desperate need of international assistance since the Taliban’s takeover in Kabul.
The disastrous US military occupation, which cost the US taxpayer more than two trillion dollars, according to the Brown University estimates, left 38 million Afghans amid a profound humanitarian crisis.
